What I am asking is if there is a version of FA2 that wan load multiple INI files like Ares supports? If there is one then can someone send me in the right direction. Google has presented me with fail so far. So if any one has one or knows where one is please share it with the world.

FA2 seriously needs a replacement.

These days, in my opinion, the "easiest" way to get a good map editor would be using my dll system and the YR++ library to make the game be the map editor itself. That map editor would then be able to make use of all Ares features if Ares is running simultaneously. Generally a lot of cool things would be possible.

There are some hints in TS code that Westwood had this planned in a similar way as it works in Red Alert - same engine, different application. Unfortunately they never realized this.

The biggest problem is that there's nobody able to do this. I'm done with YR, and anybody with the skill has enough to do with Ares. For a project like this the game has faded too much, there's not enough life left. That's my observation.

I remember you saying this years back, and since i have tryed making the game pretty much sandbox from launch. Its for sure a injection job as doing it via binary hacks caused bad headaches...

The only problem i would i think i would have in doing this would be the placement of objects on the scenario aswell as a new GUI for reading and viewing the terrain art set.

You can hook yourself into the mouse event processing and hack in whatever you wish. Clicked on world? Find out where it is in the world and spawn an object, increase the terrain height at that point, place a waypoint, whatever. Clicked on menu? Activate the respective mode. There's no real need to use the game's ugly action system to accomplish anything.

The toughest part in my opinion is creating a GUI for defining scripts etc.
